Special Issue Introduction

In the quest for a sustainable future, materials science has emerged as a pivotal frontier, enabling transformative advancements in energy conversion and storage technologies. The advancement of sustainable and renewable energy conversion and storage technologies with remarkable efficiency is now considered more crucial than ever. From this perspective, the exploration of efficient and eco-friendly materials for electrochemical energy conversion and storage represents a potential research area for developing sustainable energy resources.

Advances in nanomaterial synthesis and its usage in energy conversion and storage have attracted noteworthy attention from researchers worldwide due to their interesting outcomes. In this context, tuning the physicochemical properties of the nanostructures and nanomaterial significantly increases the electrochemical performance in various energy-related devices. The unique properties of nanostructures and nanomaterial, such as electrical conductivity, porosity, topography, surface area to volume ratio, and nature/type of active centers, directly affect the charge/mass-transfer kinetics, reaction kinetics, stability, storage capacity, and ultra-long cycle life of these electrochemical energy conversion and storage devices. Noble metals, such as palladium (Pd), platinum (Pt), gold (Au), ruthenium (Ru), rhodium (Rh), Iridium (Ir), osmium (Os), and silver (Ag), have positioned themselves as promising candidates in the realm of synthesizing nanomaterials and nanostructures for energy conversion and storage due to their unique characteristics that enhance performance efficiency and durability in various energy-related applications.

In this Special Issue, we will mainly discuss the noble metal-based nanomaterials and nanostructures for next-generation energy conversion and storage technologies, along with an in-depth understanding of the mechanisms involved in these electrochemical systems. Then, the details of the various strategies for controllable and tuned synthesizing of noble metal-based nanoscale advanced materials with unique morphologies and inimitable properties for various high-performance energy conversion reactions and energy storage systems will be concluded.

Lastly, we will summarize the critical challenges in designing noble metal-based nanostructures with adjustable and identified active sites, providing a comprehensive guide in characterization methodologies to explore mechanistic kinetics and, notably, the potential new design and development-related future opportunities.
